  • Our ice cream is super-premium. Note that we use only top-quality ingredients and our ice cream has lower butterfat content and calories than most other super-premium ice creams which better captures the subtleties of each ingredient.

Bobtail founders Jeff Wilcoxon and Chris Hill were inspired to create Bobtail by Grandpa Wilcoxon – Jeff’s grandpa – who, beginning in 1950, sold ice cream from a tiny factory and door-to-door from a truck to his neighbors in Bexley, Ohio. and small-town ideals with fresh energy and an urban touch
